This Week // 4.11.2014

Happy Weekend! It's officially Spring Break for us-- Two whole weeks of unstructured activities. We're doing a staycation in Los Angeles and plan on visiting a bunch of places in the city that we hardly ever get to. Nothing's set in stone, but we'll probably be spending time in Hollywood, Universal City, Santa Monica and Palm Desert. We're all in need of a break from the regular routine and are looking forward to rediscovering our hometown.

Here's a few things that caught my attention this week…

Great advice for everyone… not just the kids!

I was making my favorite salsa, but couldn't find any limes at the market and had to substitute with lemons… Now I know why!

I'm not really a girly-girl, but sometimes you just need a good fit & flare dress. Unfortunately this would probably be overkill for my usual weekend activity-- Sitting on the bleachers watching my kids play ball. Sigh.

Have you ever heard of using black pepper to stop bleeding? Consider me amazed. I'm not a klutz (really!!!) but I'm prone to freak injuries. **Knock on wood** The only limb that hasn't been injured is my left arm. **Knock on wood**. Yep, I'm keeping this nugget on file.

If I was compelled to actually make an Easter craft this year, it would look something like this.

My research for the week-- The best Petite bras for Petite boobs. After hours of grueling research, here are my scientific finds… Add A SizePush It Up… Contour. Compelling stuff, I know…

My favorite cooking tool now comes in MATTE??? So pretty...

Have a great weekend!!!
